Stunning 3D fossil videos - reach out and catch them!

The "soft launch" of the GB3D Type fossils online project web portal is planned to coincide with the Lyme Regis fossil festival in May 2013, but before then we have lots of stunning 3D digital fossil models that we would like to share with everyone. Chris Wardle at the British Geological Survey (BGS) has taken some of our more interesting 3D models and turned them into YouTube videos. He has done two versions - one where the fossils are shown as rotating fossils in 2D, and one where they are shown as rotating fossils in 3D anaglyphs. You will need red - blue glasses to see these properly - but some of the fossils are stunning. You feel as if you can reach out and catch them!
